This working paper examines whether migration policy, in addition to managing a country’s population size, is a suitable tool to influence immigrants’ labour market outcomes. It exploits a migration policy change that occurred in Australia in the late 1990s and data collected by the Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia.

It examines long-term impacts of a mandatory educational program conducted by the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (Vietminh) in their occupied areas during the First Indochina War. Estimation results suggest that school-age children who were exposed to the program obtained significantly higher levels of education, more than half a century later, than their peers who were residing in French-occupied areas. The impacts are statistically significant for school-age girls and not for school-age boys.
Participatory Action Research (PAR) engages people in communities as agents of change. Traditionally, development project ‘beneficiaries’ have rarely been included in researching issues, finding solutions, designing indicators or measuring change. PAR provides a way of changing this, offering an inclusive community-driven approach to development. It is also an effective way of building participatory learning into organisations supporting development and social change.
In 2015, global leaders committed to ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. Yet this Sustainable Development Goal on education (SDG4) cannot be achieved without greater accountability for all those involved – governments, schools, teachers, parents, students, civil society, the international community and the private sector.

How can social protection systems be used in disasters, as a complement to, or substitute for, humanitarian assistance? Oxford Policy Management led a two-year research project investigating this question, looking at the role of social protection in both mitigating the impact of large-scale shocks and supporting households after a crisis hits. The authors identify factors that can help and hinder effective disaster response, and consider how social protection actors collaborate with others working in humanitarian assistance and disaster risk management (DRM).
The focus of this case study in the Philippines is the experience of scaling up a social protection programme—the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Programme (known as Pantawid)—following Typhoon Haiyan in late 2013, developments since then, and options for the future. The team focused its attention on the following areas: How and why was the Pantawid programme scaled up following Typhoon Haiyan? How successful was this in providing a cost-effective, rapid and effective response to the shock?
